A neighbor is suing a British pub with an outdoor seating area.
“A licensee who is being sued for £50,000 over his smoking area has branded the action ‘bonkers.’
Shane Radmore, of the Silverton Inn in Silverton, Devon, opened up his yard to smokers last summer after seeking advice from Mid Devon District Council.
But neighbours, who bought the pub’s converted skittle alley for £175,000 in 2004, now claim nobody will buy their home because of nuisance from the yard.”
Bonkers indeed. There is a simple solution to this and a quintillion other wholly unnecessary bothers. Get rid of the damned smoking ban.
